I have a Toshiba satellite with a celeron processor 1500Mhz, 224MB of RAM, 17 inch wide screen monitor, and a 60 gig harddrive.
It has a problem with the power cord plugin, I have to raise the cord to get it to charge the battery and it won't run without some charge in the battery. A local repair shop wants $250 to repair it. No I don't have any warranty left.
I want a smaller laptop for word processing, music downloading, and I want wireless. Thats it. I am going traveling and I don't want to lug this bigass thing around anymore.
The repair guy said it was a soldering job, with a new power socket.
Do I sell it (whats it worth?) or do I get it fixed first?
